Select Case not allowing variable to be used

Hello,

I have some code that depending on the day of the week a certain query is created:

Select Case Today.dayofweek

     Case 1
          ProEnroll = From pe In Me.DataWorkspace.ApplicationData.PaidProgramsEnrollments
               Where pe.ProgramName = pp.ProgramName andAlso pe.Monday = True

     Case 2
          ProEnroll = From pe In    Me.DataWorkspace.ApplicationData.PaidProgramsEnrollements
                Where pe.ProgramName = pp.ProgramName andAlso pe.Tuesday = True

End Select

When I go to use ProEnroll, intellisense does not recognize it.  If it was not in a Select Case structure Intellisense would recognize it.  How can I get around this.

Thanks

kaufmed,

I did not declare it.  Here is code just before the statement I previously included that works:

Dim ProgramQuery = From p In Me.DataWorkspace.ApplicationData.PaidProgramsSet
          Order By p.ProgramName

This variable is not declared but intellisense picks it up and I have access to that entity set.
However, I'm open to any viable option that will move me forward.

If you did not declare the variable, and you are relying solely on implicit declaration, then your variables only exist within the scope within which they appear--that is, within each CASE statement. You need to widen the scope of the variable. Try declaring the variable outside of your SELECT.

e.g.

Dim ProEnroll As IEnumerable(Of {the type of objects that ProgramsEnrollments contains})

Select Case Today.dayofweek

...
